Forums > Travel Yunnan > Latest on the New Airport

Just wondering if anybody knows what the latest is with flights into and out of Kunming? I will be flying back in on a connectting flight from Beijing on March 19th and then also making a weekend trip from Kunming out to HK a week later. Is everything still operating out of the old airport right now? The last thread I read about this a few months ago said that maybe international flights might begin operating out of the new airport with domestic flights continuing to temporarily operate out of Wujiaba. Is this still the case as far anybody knows?

China Eastern flies direct as well, but Thai is a far superior airline. My my hope is that with the new airport more options to Thailand will eventually open up. I used to really appreciate Thai's twice a week direct service to Chiang Mai then they cancelled it in 2009. Now the only direct service to CM is on a little tiny really old regional jet on China Eastern, so I've still just flown Thai and connected in BKK.

I've actually been excited about the idea of a new modern international airport for quite some time but now I'm actually hoping it won't actually open on time as I have a short trip back to Kunming (I'm usually only in Yunnan about six months out of the year, this is a random short visit) of about ten days in March and don't really wan't to deal with traveling to and from the new location twice in such a short time period. If I was around for my typical long term stay it wouldn't bother me so much.
